Password Protected Area

Post by mariner01 » Sun May 19, 2019 9:50 am

Hello
I would like to have an area on the website, which is password protected, ie for certain members only where they can view restricted documents.
Have looked everywhere for information but not yet successful.
Any help appreciated
Many thanks :eek:

Make your users registered users. Make the content (articles, menus, modules etc) which you want only them can see as "Registered". With the ACL you can also create custom user groups and levels using the default levels to use as a guide.

Obviously "looking everywhere" didn't include the very page that answers your question - the ACL documentation as already posted ;).
